    2. As long as you don't exceed 250km/h by much you are fine. The DME detects and flags exceeding VMAX and stores it in a non erasable location. The Going downhill excuse only goes sofar... 3. If that's what you want. I just keep the car on MAP 5. Just for fun and giggles on a daily basis :D 4. MAP 0 makes the JB4 undetectable thru the OBD2 port

    So basically we are going to have another turbo vendor on this forum that acts like a 5 year old. Got it.

    Hi all! I have a 335i, N54, DCT with JB4 G5 ISO, everything else is stock, and still under warranty. I'm only interested in running normal fuel on map 5, not planning on doing E85 or Meth etc. 1. I'd like to do the backend flash, because I read that it makes the DCT shifts more smooth under WOT, and kickdown should be working better, since with backend flash the DME and transmission knows about the real load. Is this true? 2. I read that using SLD-wires for Vmax will void BMW warranty, because it's detectable. What about the backend-flash, I read it also disables Vmax-limit. Is it detectable by BMW? Or is it fine when I don't hit more than 250 kmh? 3. On daily driving I'm disabling JB4 (map 0), because stock power is fine then and I want to prevent wear and stuff. Is that ok? 4. Now I read that on ISO-boards, map 0 is not anymore real pass-through. Is that true? Is it just the boost that's still controlled by JB4, but targets boost from DME? Is there any measurable in power/boost difference between JB4 map 0 and no installed JB4, like more or less? 5. What about backend flash + map 0? Is it normally usable in daily driving, like stock? Thanks in helping me out with my questions! Greets

    Brakes REALLY SUCK..... the rear axle hops around like a Banshee on crack on any type of bumpy road... in D mode the car feels like the brakes are being applied with a pause at 2000-2300 rpms... I think the Golf GTi is a better car as of now... the Golf R with AWD will be stellar

    Yes they did. Not sure if they redesigned or just shimmed the pressure plate... Or made the clutch discs less thick. Whaterever it is that was done makes it fit. The latest parts work. Expect it to drive just like any other aggressive clutch. It chatters even during acceleration at low rpm and its hard to slip but it holds power that's for sure! I guess my only complaint with a twin disc is the engagement window is very small so it hard to take off. Imgetting used to it. I have 600 miles on it now

    IMO that's a much better way to do it. Just show how and what you're doing and let customers draw conclusions. Anytime a comparison is made(right, wrong or in between) there will be people defending that product or jumping on the pile derailing the thread. Just make the best product you can and people will come.

    My bad, was meant to be to show progress on R&D. Post has been cleaned up now. Will be posting my results good or bad going forward as I think I will generate some good data I am willing to share. Will keep vendor comparisons and any potential future pricing out of thread. If and when we get to that point, plan would be to become a vendor.

    I thought at first it was only blue and black. But now I've seen the same image change colour. I can make it flop it seems by scrolling on this NP article. http://news.nationalpost.com/2015/02/27/is-this-dress-white-and-gold-or-blue-and-black-tumblr-photo-sparks-unlikely-online-debate/ Vice has a good article also. http://www.vice.com/read/heres-whats-happening-with-that-dress-with-the-confusing-colors-882

    Bingo. Hence why nobody else should be mentioned and there should be no talk of pricing but strictly turbo discussion from an engineering standpoint. That is what was expected but you know how it goes...

    It is pennies and trust me I'll be upping that (it gets more expensive if you add bells and whistles of course). I'd pay it just to have a banner insulting someone on the forum that pissed me off. It's easier being the admin though.

    Just my personal opinion but if you're going to start a thread drawing comparisons on a product(not yet ready to post results) to currently offered products you are opening the door to the guys that are paying vendor fees to refute those claims. Especially if you won't pay vendor fees. I have no dog in this fight and i'm done with anything involving the stock frames and just offering my opinion.
